KPL Membership

Kunzang Palchen Ling is a center for study and practice of the Buddhist teachings that has been offered to students in the U.S. through the kindness, wisdom, and unceasing effort of the 3rd Bardor Rinpoche. It is up to all of us to help it grow and develop, and to ensure its continuation. Please consider becoming a part of this undertaking.

It is through the continuous support from our members that we can make Kunzang Palchen Ling available to students in the U.S. Please consider becoming a member and sharing with others the merit and joy of making the Buddha’s teachings available in the West.

A membership is your pledge to regularly contribute to the KPL General Fund.

By joining the membership at Kunzang Palchen Ling, you’ll support the following:

  1. Preserve the lineage teachings and practices of Terchen Barway Dorje.
  2. Make available a center where the wisdom of all four major lineages of Tibetan Buddhism is taught.
  3. Enable KPL to reduce the costs of its programs so that more people, regardless of their means, can attend the teachings, empowerments, and practices.
  4. Support a tradition that emphasizes developing loving-kindness and compassion for all beings.
